Man Stole Money From Children's League To Fuel Gambling Habit
Most countries have moved towards helping lower problem gambling cases. Different educational tools and programs have been put in place to ensure that the addictions of gambling do not interfere with people's daily lives.
Every now and then, however, the ugly side of gambling still rears its head, and the results are not pretty. That is the case for one man who stole money from a children's football league to fuel his addiction.
Steven Nunn has watched his life hit rock bottom after taking registration fees from Bourne Vale Football Club and using the money to gamble. Nunn was the secretary of the league.
"Whatever punishment is given to me it will help me to change my life. I am very sorry," he said. He is now trying to turn his life around after admitting to stealing the money.
